Good morning! Here is today's Kansas City Chiefs news. Not a lot of stories, but what we do have includes the kickoff of the offseason program, cheerleaders, and The Nigerian Nightmare. Not bad.

Kansas City Chiefs Begin Offseason Program from The Mothership

Football is back. Okay, it's not fully back, but when the Kansas City Chiefs players arrive later this morning to begin Phase One of the team's offseason conditioning program, we're one step closer to the beginning of training camp in late July.

Today's workout kicks off the series of nine-week programs, conducted in three phases as defined by the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Chiefs Cheerleader Poster Shoot from The Mothership

To kickoff the day, each girl took a headshot and a full body shot in the Chiefs Cheerleader uniform and for some, this was when a dream became a reality.

"Poster shoot is a very exciting time for all of our Cheerleaders," Judah noted. "It is when the rookies put on that uniform and realize their dreams have come true. For veterans, it is that moment of excitement to be part of history for another year. It is so special to watch all of them come together and become the 2014 team. It is truly a special moment."

Now, to be fair, I'm not sure Chiefs general manager John Dorsey would take a player of Cooks' size in the first round -- I've gotten the sense Dorsey prefers bigger players everywhere. But Cooks is comfortable working the middle, despite his size, and boasts legit athleticism. He could be an impact player in the right system.

A tight end, pass rusher, offensive lineman and cornerback are all in play here, and so is a safety if Pryor or Clinton-Dix somehow fall this far. This isn't a bad position to be in, at all -- no matter how the board plays out, chances are theChiefs can take an impact player here at a position of need.
